Buckinghamshire Council’s Remembrance Sunday wreath-laying service to take place in Aylesbury on 14th November 2021

| November 13, 2021

Buckinghamshire Council’s Remembrance Sunday wreath-laying service will take place in Aylesbury’s Market Square on Sunday 14th November 2021, with the service starting at 10.45am.

The service continues the tradition of a Remembrance Day wreath-laying service in Aylesbury, the county town.

Cllr Zahir Mohammed, Chairman of Buckinghamshire Council, who will lead the service to remember our armed forces, said: ‘No public events were possible for Remembrance Day in 2020 due to the pandemic and the national restrictions put in place, so it is wonderful that this year we can publicly honour all those who have fallen in defence of our country in past wars and other military conflicts.

Also attending the service will be representatives from the British Army, Royal Air Force, Royal Navy, Royal British Legion, Ellesborough Silver Band, veterans and community organisations including the Scouts, Brownies and Army Cadets.

The service includes an introduction by Father Doug Zimmerman, a reading by Royal British Legion President Ray James, the playing of the Last Post, two minutes silence and the bugle call Reveille.

Residents are welcome to come along to the event and pay tribute to our fallen heroes.

The event in Aylesbury is being arranged by Buckinghamshire Council on behalf of the county, however there are also many other local events being held throughout Buckinghamshire.
